2A girls basketball: Tampa Prep stays close then stumbles in stretch

LAKELAND — Latora Lofgren scored 24, with 17 coming in the first half, but it wasn't enough as Tampa Prep fell 54-41 to Lakeland Christian in a Class 2A region quarterfinal Thursday night.

Tampa Prep took an early 6-0 lead, but Lakeland Christian fought back to tie it at 21 going into halftime.

Christin Strawbridge's 10 points in the third quarter matched Tampa Prep's team total as the Vikings outscored the Terrapins opponent 19-10 to take a 40-31 lead.

Strawbridge had a game-high 30 points as her team fed her the ball in the post all night.

After Lofgren hit one of her two free throws to start the fourth quarter, Strawbridge put the game away with seven straight points.

Strawbridge scored 19 of Lakeland Christian's 33 second-half points.

Lakeland Christian will host Indian Rocks Christian on Tuesday.
